Running For 
MOORPARK COLLEGE Part-time VP

Angela Wilkins

My name is Angela Wilkins and I am running for Moorpark College Part-time AFT Vice President. I started teaching mathematics at Moorpark in 1993. In recent years, I represented both part and full-time faculty on two different negotiating teams, one for the CBA and the most recent Health Benefits negotiations. Currently, I proudly serve on the Compressed Calendar Negotiations Team representing both instructional and non-instructional faculty rights. I've greatly enjoyed working with the teams and have learned a great deal about our contract and the reasoning behind its components. In addition to negotiations, I've served on AFT's Health Benefits Committee for the past 6 years. Through these experiences, I feel quite comfortable standing up to management and advocating in the best interest of our faculty. 

As your part-time representative, I have an idea that I want to see come to fruition; a dedicated space on campus for part-timers to gather, to work, to meet with students. Have you ever sat in your car on campus and responded to emails or graded papers before class starts because you do not have an office? I have. I appreciate the generosity of many full timers who offered to share office space with me, but part-time faculty need a home to interact with one another, create community, and grow our voice. 

If elected, I promise to make choices as an executive officer that will positively affect our everyday work environments and place our faculty and students at the center of our institution. As a member of the AFT Executive Council, I will encourage innovative solutions and sound decision-making to foster solidarity and participation from our members. 

It would be an honor and a privilege to represent the part-time faculty at our college. I would appreciate your vote.

Hello part-time faculty members of Moorpark College,

Thank you for being members of AFT 1828. Election time is here, and I am asking for your vote to continue serving you as Moorpark’s part-time faculty VP.

My platform has been and will continue to be that part-time faculty members’ salary, benefits, and working conditions are equitable to our full-time faculty colleagues. The research I have provided AFT is being utilized in these pursuits by our team. 

You worked incredibly hard to be able to work here at Moorpark College. You have credentials that are difficult to achieve, expensive to obtain, and deserve to be compensated fairly at Moorpark College whose mission is equity. 

You deserve for your completed trainings and certifications earned while teaching at other districts to be considered for equivalency here at Moorpark.

You deserve access to the same health care benefits and premium coverage as your full-time colleagues. 

You deserve to build wealth with Equitable pre-tax saving’s opportunities.

Since 2022, you have received my many emails. Maybe you have attended one of the Part time faculty Caucus’ AFT held on Zoom. Perhaps you dropped by the AFT table at one of the FLEX days to learn about the benefits we have through Union Plus. Many of us have spoken on the phone, or emailed. You are all wonderful and deserve to be represented by a VP who works to serve you.

Your vote matters!
